The Tigers tendered a contract to Matthew Boyd. The Cubs were set to tender a contract to Kris Bryant. Mets tendered a contract to Robert Gsellman and Amed Rosario.
Guys Who Got Non-Tenderized
Kyle Schwarber was non-tendered, as well as Albert Almora, Ryan Tepera, and Jose Martinez. The Royals were expected to non-tender third baseman Maikel Franco. We won’t be needing him as the image above confirms. The White Sox non-tendered Nomar Mazara and Carlos Rodon. Rodon is a starter and Mazara is an outfielder. The Reds non-tendered Brian Goodwin. To get him back would probably cost us a couple Million of Arte’s hard earned dollars. The Braves non-tendered outfielder Adam Duvall. The Mets non-tendered Chasen Shreve. The Indians non-tendered outfielder Tyler Naquin. The Braves non-tendered Corey Knebel. The Blue Jays non-tendered Travis Shaw and A. J. Cole. The Rockies non-tendered outfielder David Dahl, catcher Tony Wolters, and right hander Chi Chi Gonzalez.
Outfielder Eddie Rosario cleared outright waivers. He got non-tendered. The Cubs claimed right hander Robert Stock off waivers from the Red Sox. As an American League GM, Perry Minasian would have had prior dibs and apparently passed. Hopefully this signals that he has grander designs than mere dumpster diving. Dan Straily re-signed with the Lotte Giants of the KBO.
